Behavioral disorders are a class of certain conditions that typically develop in children or adolescents and are characterized by chronic patterns of aggression, defiance, disruption, and hostility. When these behaviors are present, children or adolescents will often develop problems at home, school, and within interpersonal relationships. Behavioral disorders among children and adolescents can present themselves in a number of different ways. Every child is different and, as such, childhood behavioral disorders are going to affect each child in a different way. Additionally, since misbehaving at times is a normal part of growing up, it can be difficult to discern the difference between a normal stage that your child or adolescent is going through and a more serious underlying condition. In order to avoid these potential negative consequences, early recognition and intervention is needed.

How to Help a Loved One

  • Smoking or drinking at an early age

Why Consider Treatment

Why consider treatment for behavioral disorders at Millcreek of Magee Treatment Center in Mississippi

The presence of these symptoms may indicate that your child or adolescent is grappling with some form of behavioral health problem. If not properly addressed, these poor choices and inappropriate behaviors become habit, bringing about a tremendous amount of turmoil in the child’s life and in the lives of those around them. Children or adolescents with behavioral difficulties are at a higher risk for academic failure, the development of certain mental health disorders, and suicide. They may throw frequent temper tantrums, hurt themselves during a destructive outburst, abuse drugs or alcohol, be openly defiant, or engage in risky sexual activity. Furthermore, it is not uncommon for these children and adolescents to experience feelings of low self-worth and lowered self-esteem. Generally speaking, the presence of such negative behavior patterns can impact a child’s life in the future as they event adulthood.
